Faculty FAQs

What is the symposium all about? The symposium is a gathering where students present research and work to their peers, faculty, and staff. It allows students to interact and discuss their ideas in an academic venue meant to help them build and practice academic and professional skills. The symposium aims to reach the following goals:

  • To provide students who are engaged in research and academic activities an opportunity to interact with each other and present their work before an audience of their peers.

  • To encourage students to build and enhance academic presentation skills.
  • To promote and strengthen collaboration in research and academic activities among students and faculty.
